Some other fun "art toys" I like are:
I fell in love with generative art this year, and it became my favorite thing to do. Neon is the first presentable thing I made.
My current favourite: https://skulk.org/cell1d/#s22492231 . Is there any way to learn what are the rules for this pattern?
There is no simple way to get the rules for that CA. However, if you press Shift+Space, you get an alternative representation of the hash that lets you re-seed while keeping the same rule: https://skulk.org/cell1d/#c2:3:1,0,0,1,0,0,1,0:12;120;115,15...
This format is ad-hoc, but you can read it as such: The first number after #c is 2, which is the number of states. The second number, 3, is the size of the transition window. This tells us that this is a standard 1-d CA. The next 8 (2^3) numbers is the transition table. Interpreting it as binary (in reverse), we get the number (and rule) 73. http://atlas.wolfram.com/01/01/73/
The next couple of numbers are the colors used, and the final number is the seed. You can change this and the rules/colors will remain the same but the top row is re-randomized.
BTW: here is my favorite. I call it the coral reef: https://skulk.org/cell1d/#s54509032
The basic mode is a matrix of identical tiles spinning at different rates, creating complex organic motion out of a simple concept. There are two other modes and lots of fun parameters to play with!

Or is this just a link to a paid app? Looks cool though. Art is worth paying for.
There seems to be an interest in generative are on Hacker News lately. Another one I saw that didn't make it to the front page was No Paint:
